Radical Radish Pod Pizza

Radish pods? You may be scratching your head at this point but this is a wonderful by product of those awesome radishes when you let them flower as part of their natural reproduction, they produce these pods that taste like a mild radish was crossed with a sugar snap pea. They are great to eat raw and in salads but in my tradition of thinking outside the (C. S. A.) box I wanted to share yet another possibility for these delicate wonders. Combined with some other summer garden staples (heirloom tomatoes, zucchini and basil and the imported treat of all natural Prosciutto di Parma, this radical pizza is a real winner!
